Oakland Profile


Overview

Oakland is a very small city located in the state of Missouri. With a population of 1,382 people and just one neighborhood, Oakland is the 302nd largest community in Missouri.

Oakland real estate is some of the most expensive in Missouri, although Oakland house values don't compare to the most expensive real estate in the U.S.

Occupations and Workforce

Oakland is a decidedly white-collar city, with fully 94.67% of the workforce employed in white-collar jobs, well above the national average. Overall, Oakland is a city of professionals, sales and office workers, and managers. There are especially a lot of people living in Oakland who work in sales jobs (15.33%), management occupations (14.00%), and healthcare (11.50%).

Of important note, Oakland is also a city of artists. Oakland has more artists, designers and people working in media than 90% of the communities in America. This concentration of artists helps shape Oakland’s character.


Setting & Lifestyle

In addition, Oakland is home to many people who could be described as "urban sophisticates", which are people who are not only wealthy and employed in professional occupations, but highly educated to boot. Urban sophisticates have urbane tastes - whether they reside in a big or small city, a suburb, or a little town. Urban sophisticates support bookstores, quality clothing stores, enjoy luxury travel, and in big cities, they are truly the patrons of the arts, attending and supporting institutions such as opera, symphony, ballet, and theatre.

Because of many things, Oakland is a very good place for families to consider. With an enviable combination of good schools, low crime, college-educated neighbors who tend to support education because of their own experiences, and a high rate of home ownership in predominantly single-family properties, Oakland really has some of the features that families look for when choosing a good community to raise children. Is Oakland perfect? Of course not, and if you like frenetic nightlife, it will be far from your cup of tea. But overall this is a solid community, with many things to recommend it as a family-friendly place to live.

Oakland is a small city, and as is often the case with smaller towns, the population isn't large or dense enough to support much in the way of a public transportation system. In fact, there are many rural roads around Oakland, which makes walking or biking to and from work a bit difficult. This makes for a very car-oriented town: 0.97% of residents commute to work by private automobile, and people often drive out of town for work, shopping, and other activities.

As is often the case in a small city, Oakland doesn't have a public transportation system that people use for their commute.

The per capita income in Oakland in 2010 was $52,029, which is wealthy relative to Missouri and the nation. This equates to an annual income of $208,116 for a family of four.
